It turns out the ‘protesters’ we were seeing in Ferguson, and possibly those in New York and Baltimore, are not angry citizens as we were meant to believe, they are rent-a-mobs who expected to be paid while they cry “no justice, no peace.”

A group in Missouri has been paying protesters $5,000 a month to generate civil unrest in Ferguson, the troubled St. Louis suburb where black youth Michael Brown was killed by a white police officer last August.

Turns out some of the ‘protesters’ haven’t been paid and are demanding what they were promised. They held a sit-in at the offices of Missourians Organizing for Reform and Empowerment (MORE) and posted a demand letter online.

12 Unanswered Questions About The Baltimore Riots That They Don’t Want Us To Ask

by Michael Snyder
The Economic Collapse

Apr 28, 2015

Why did the Baltimore riots seem like they were perfectly staged to be a television event?  Images of police vehicles burning made for great television all over the planet, but why were there abandoned police vehicles sitting right in the middle of the riot zones without any police officers around them in the first place?  Why was the decision made ahead of time to set a curfew for Tuesday night and not for Monday night?  And why are Baltimore police officers claiming that they were ordered to “stand down” and not intervene as dozens of shops, businesses and homes went up in flames?  Yes, the anger over the death of Freddie Gray is very real.  Police brutality has been a major problem in Baltimore and much of the rest of the nation for many years.  But could it be possible that the anger that the people of Baltimore are feeling is being channeled and manipulated for other purposes?  The following are 12 unanswered questions about the Baltimore riots that they don’t want us to ask…

#1 Why are dozens of social media accounts that were linked to violence in Ferguson now trying to stir up violence in Baltimore?…

The data mining firm that found between 20 and 50 social media accounts in Baltimore linked to the violence in Ferguson, Mo. is now reporting a spike in message traffic in Washington D.C., Philadelphia and New York City, with “protesters” trying to get rides to Baltimore for Tuesday night.

The firm, which asked to remain anonymous because it does government work, said some of the suspect social media accounts in Baltimore are sending messages to incite violence. While it is possible to spoof an account, to make it look like someone is one place and really is in another, that does not fully explain the high numbers.

#2 Who was behind the aggressive social media campaign to organize a “purge” that would start at the Mondawmin Mall at precisely 3 PM on Monday afternoon?…

The spark that ignited Monday’s pandemonium probably started with high school students on social media, who were discussing a “purge” — a reference to a film in which laws are suspended.

Many people knew “very early on” that there was “a lot of energy behind this purge movement,” Baltimore City Councilman Nick Mosby told CNN on Tuesday. “It was a metaphor for, ‘Let’s go out and make trouble.’”

#3 Even though authorities had “credible intelligence” that gangs would be specifically targeting police officers on Monday, why weren’t they more prepared?  On Tuesday, the captain of the Baltimore police tried to make us believe that they weren’t prepared because they were only anticipating a confrontation with “high schoolers”

Police Capt. John Kowalczyk said the relatively light initial police presence was because authorities were preparing for a protest of high schoolers. A heavy police presence and automatic weapons would not have been appropriate, he said. Kowalczyk said police made more than 200 arrests — only 34 of them juveniles.

#4 Where were the Baltimore police on Monday afternoon when the riots exploded?  During the rioting, CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin said that the “disappearance of the police for hours this afternoon is something that is going to haunt this city for decades”.

#5 Why are police officers in Baltimore claiming that they were instructed to “stand down” during the rioting on Monday afternoon?…

Police officers in Baltimore reportedly told journalists that they were ordered by Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake not to stop looters during yesterday’s riots.

Rawlings-Blake, who waited 5 hours before even making a statement on the unrest, was already under intense critcism for saying that violent mobs were provided with “space” to “destroy” during riots which took place on Saturday.

One Baltimore shopkeeper said that he actually called the police 50 times asking for help and never got any assistance at all.  Other business owners reported similar results.  This is so similar to what we saw back during the Ferguson riots.

#6 Why was the decision made ahead of time to set a curfew on Tuesday night but not on Monday night?

#7 Why were so many police vehicles conveniently parked along the street in areas where the worst violence happened?  After the destruction of a number of police vehicles on Saturday night, the Baltimore police had to know that they were prime targets.  So why were there even more police vehicles available for rioters to destroy on Monday?  And where were the cops that should have been protecting those vehicles?

#8 Why is an organization funded by George Soros stirring up emotions against the police in Baltimore?

#9 Why is CNN bringing on “commentators” that are promoting violence in Baltimore?…

Marc Lamont Hill, a Morehouse College professor and regular CNN commentator, embraced radical violence in the streets during an interview Monday on CNN.

“There shouldn’t be calm tonight,” Hill told CNN host Don Lemon as riots raged in the streets of Baltimore.

“Black people are dying in the streets. We’ve been dying in the streets for months, years, decades, centuries. I think there can be resistance to oppression.”

#10 Why did Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake initially tell reporters that a decision was made on Saturday to give “those who wished to destroy space to do that”?

#11 Why were rioters given hours to cause mayhem before a state of emergency was finally declared on Monday?  Maryland Governor Larry Hogan seems to think that Mayor Rawlings-Blake waited far too long to declare a state of emergency.  Just check out what he told one reporter

I‘ve been in daily communication with the mayor and others in the city and our entire team has been involved from day one. Frankly, this was a Baltimore city situation. Baltimore city was in charge. When the mayor called me, which quite frankly we were glad that she finally did, instantly we signed the executive order. We already had our entire team prepared.

We were all in a command center and second floor of the state house in constant communication and we were trying to get in touch with the mayor for quite some time. She finally made that call and we immediately took action. 

#12 Does the fact that the mayor of Baltimore has very close ties to the Obama administration have anything to do with how events unfolded during the riots?  The following is from Infowars.com

Rawlings-Blake was one of three mayors who provided broad input into President Obama’s Task Force on 21st Century Policing, which advocates the federalization of police departments across the country by forcing them to adhere to stricter federal requirements when they receive funding.

“The federal government can be a strong partner in our efforts in build better relationships between the police and community,” she said in written testimony before the task force.

That would explain her inaction to stop the rioting when it began: by allowing it to spiral out of control, the mayor and her friends at the Justice Dept. could use the unrest to justify the expansion of federal power into local law enforcement, which would also allow her to receive more funding.

And why did it take Barack Obama several days to publicly condemn the violence in Baltimore?  Why didn’t he stand up and say something on Monday when the riots were at their peak?

Something doesn’t smell right about all of this.  Much of the violence could have been prevented if things had been handled differently.

In the end, who is going to get hurt the most by all of this?  It will be the African-American communities in the heart of Baltimore that are already suffering with extremely high levels of unemployment and poverty.

I wish that we could all just learn to come together and love one another.  Over the past few days, I have seen a whole lot of “us vs. them” talk coming from all quarters.  This kind of talk is only going to reinforce the cycle of mistrust and violence.

Sadly, I believe that this is just the beginning of what is coming to America.  The following are some tweets that show the mayhem and destruction that we have been witnessing in Baltimore the past few days…

Ferguson’s Violent Hangover and The Incredible Shrinking President

Patrick Henningsen
21st Century Wire

[Nov 26, 2014]

A verdict was returned, and Ferguson burned. Anyone who was really paying attention was hardly surprised.

It brought back memories of similar scenes; the 1965 Watts Riots, the Rodney King verdict and the subsequent 1992 LA Riots, and most recently the aftermath of the Zimmerman-Martin verdict in 2013. But this time it made little, if any sense.

Monday evening in Clayton, Missouri, St. Louis County prosecutor Robert McCulloch announced that a Grand Jury had delivered its decision for Officer Darren Wilson vs. Michael Brown. Five indictment charges were presented and the jury found “no probable cause” and returned a “no true” bill for all five charges. Tremors began to shake the streets almost immediately after…

See Full Ferguson Time Line Here

Professional street agitator of Freddy’s Fashion Mart fame, FBI supergrass, and (somehow) now a White House ‘advisor’, Al Sharpton, wasted no time getting in front of TV cameras and claiming that street outrage, rioting and looting were somehow ‘warranted’, and proceeded to deliver a veiled threat to the prosecutors office stating, “This is not our first rodeo McCulloch, we will deal with this in a way civil rights leaders have”.

STEPFATHER LOUIS: “Burn this bitch down!”

CNN reported how last night, Louis Headthe stepfather of “gentle giant” Michael Brown, married to Brown’s mother, Lesley McSpadden, was on the streets outside of Ferguson Police Department Headquarters screaming to the angry mobs, “Burn this bitch down!”, following prosecutor Bob McCulloch’s announcement of a ‘Not Guilty’ verdict.

Head himself should be charged with reckless (and brainless) endangerment after such an incitement – at a time when the mob was assembling and ready to boil over. As an ex-con himself, now inciting street violence, Head might just be in violation of his parole. Nonetheless, Head’s approach pretty much embodies the mentality and politics of everyone who jumped onto the cultural Marxist bandwagon for this latest joy ride; lynch mob rules, and to hell with rationality. More balkanization of American society. Divide and Rule. Welcome, to another addition of Thunderdome

Flash Mobs ‘In Solidarity’, For Solidarity’s Sake

Late last night, St. Louis Police confirmed over 150 gunshots were fired last night – from protesters – towards police, including shots fired at police helicopters. Fire fighters who arrived to put out flames set by Ferguson arsonists also took gunfire from the mob and were forced to retreat, leaving fire hoses laying on the streets at midnight.

We are continuously told the following from activists and community organizers: “the community is shocked and angered by the decision (verdict)”, but if you actually review the facts and full transcripts of the testimonies (read the full PDF below) in what was seems to be a very thorough investigation, then it’s hard to see exactly what the community would be shocked about. In general, protesters cared little about witness testimonies and seemed uninterested about in any evidence presented.

Because the verdict went the wrong way, the mob seems to have even brushed off the testimonies of black witnesses, who were also local residents.

With all the mindless media rhetoric and the flaky ignorance of  legal due process, one can only conclude that mobs are not mourning for Michael Brown, nor are that concerned with justice either, and are certainly not interested in the rule of law (that should be pretty obvious by now). They saw a big colorful bandwagon, all gassed-up and ready to go. Another opportunity to ‘organize’...

VIDEO — Media Goofs, Obvious Advanced Knowledge of Ferguson Grand Jury Decision

(Truthstream Media)

While I was watching the supposedly “live” feed from Clayton, MO where the St. Louis Prosecutor was set to release the announcement of the grand jury’s decision, I noticed Drudge Report already had a link to a USA Today article declaring no charges…the story with the no verdict went out a full 15 minutes before the prosecutor’s “live” press conference announcing it.

OBVIOUSLY the media had advanced notice here.

In fact, right on cue after the decision was announced, someone set a police car on fire.

Via Kev Baker, one of our fellow hosts on Truth Frequency Radio:

Truthstream FB Friend Craig Wood reported, “At approximately 9pm as seen on live footage Ferguson police started an advance and started gassing and firing rubber bullets at a relatively peaceful crowd. The advance continues as I make this post.”

This whole thing is more staged than a Broadway show, and apparently the singing and dancing has already begun.

Why such hype about the Michael Brown killing?

Outrage In Missouri Town After Police Shooting Of 18-Yr-Old Man

Why such hype about the Michael Brown killing?

By Brandon Martinez

Why is there such hype over the police shooting death of one African-American 18-year-old in the US? Every death is a tragedy, but the disproportionate coverage of the slaying of Michael Brown at the hands of a Ferguson, Missouri, police officer earlier this month is odd, don’t you think?

The disputed incident and its aftermath has been the mainstay of media headlines for weeks. Even international media outlets have picked up on the story.

In contrast, murders of white people in the US are not given proportionate coverage, and are in fact downplayed quite significantly by all major media.

When in 2007, a young white Tennessee couple, Channon Christian and Chris Newson, were abducted by five black assailants, sexually assaulted and then murdered in a brutal fashion, the national media was completely silent. Dozens of other murders of whites in a similarly grotesque manner go underreported or unreported by major outlets in the US and abroad. In fact, black-on-white crime is a veritable taboo in the mass media, never to be broached with any serious vigor.

The race of black or non-white perpetrators of violent crime is often completely left out of media reports. It is even worse in Europe where immigrants charged with violent offenses are given extremely lenient sentences for despicable crimes.

Unbeknownst to most people, white people in South Africa are in danger of genocide. Genocide Watch has been tracking the violent racist murders of South African whites, especially farmers, who have been killed in the tens of thousands since the fall of apartheid in 1994. Yet you’d never know about it if you were an avid follower of mainstream media.

America’s black community has mobilized mass protests over the shooting death of Michael Brown, alleging the cause of the tragedy stems from white racism in the Ferguson police force. The race of the offending police officer in this instance is being heavily emphasized, whereas if the roles were reversed (i.e., Michael Brown was white and the officer who shot him was black) than the race of the officer or the slain teen would not even be an issue here. In fact, the death might not even have been reported outside local media.

The moral particularism of some African-Americans is hard to ignore. Citing a 2012 study by the US Department of Justice’s Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention, American Free Press writer Victor Thorn pointed out that “in 2010 black youths committed six times more murders, three times more rapes, 10 times more robberies and three times more assaults than did their white counterparts.” Thorn quotes an FBI crime report which stated that “In the year 2008, black youths, who make up 16% of the youth population, accounted for 52% of juvenile violent crime arrests, including 58% for homicide and 67% for robbery.” “By contrast,” Thorn explained, “the only categories where white youths surpassed blacks were in liquor law violations and driving under the influence.”

Some of these violent crimes are committed explicitly due to the perpetrator’s racist contempt for the white victims, yet such incidents are rarely covered in any substantial way by major media.

Despite numerous studies and FBI crime statistics that consistently demonstrate the disproportionate number of violent crimes committed by blacks and other minorities in the US, there are never any mass demonstrations against the perpetrators of these crimes. African-Americans are not protesting the racist attacks against whites in South Africa. No, they are silent on the issue.

The fact is that the political power of whites in the US and other Western countries has declined dramatically over the past 50 to 60 years. Today, it is not uncommon to find harsh critiques of white history in high schools and universities. The constant bleating about slavery and colonial-era misconduct of European states is the bread and butter of the history and sociology departments of most major universities. Yet other racial and ethnic groups are not faced with the same obsessive historical scrutiny. People of African descent are not told to feel guilty about the plethora of atrocities that have occurred on their continent of origin over the centuries, including slavery which is a crime most races and cultures on earth have tried their hand at; Chinese are not told to feel bad about the colossal misdeeds committed by Chairman Mao’s communist regime or other dark periods in Chinese history; Jews are not made to feel remorseful over the fact that many of their people spearheaded Bolshevism and are responsible for the carnage and cruelty it inflicted upon the people of Russia and Eastern Europe. But white people are implored to hang their heads in perpetual shame over the actions and policies of their elite hundreds of years ago when morality wasn’t quite as far up the humanist ladder as it is today.

As Jared Taylor of American Renaissance pointed out in a recent video entitled “War on Whites,” racist outbursts against whites by prominent people in society are not met with hostility by the media or academia. It is perfectly ok to insult whites and make crass generalizations about them. Taylor cites several recent articles appearing in mainstream periodicals headlined “Why I Can’t Stand White Belly Dancers” and “Why I’m Tired of Seeing White People on the Big Screen.” Those responsible for such diatribes are rarely, if ever, reprimanded or scrutinized. One extreme example is that of Noel Ignatiev, a Jewish former professor of American history at Massachusetts College of Art who founded a bizarre magazine called “Race Traitor” and notoriously called for the white race to be “abolished.” The Race Traitor magazine’s tagline is: “Treason to whiteness is loyalty to humanity.” Many other examples of this kind of hate speech against whites can be found permeating mainstream media and academic discourse in the West, yet if similar things are said by prominent whites against other ethnic groups, there is overwhelming backlash from all areas of society.

The double standards are clear as day on the issue of race. Ethnic minorities in the West are encouraged to be ethnocentric, chauvinistic and to act in concert with one another to advance their ethnic interests, whereas whites are condemned as racists for doing the same. White academics such as Philippe Rushton are scolded, hounded and harried for even suggesting, based on scientific data, that there are biological differences between the races.

St. Louis Cop Suspended After Radical Views Are Exposed by YouTuber — videos included

Activist Post
Aug 23, 2014

Sergeant Dan Page of the St. Louis County Police Department was caught earlier this week participating in what seemed like a staged CNN broadcast in Ferguson where he shoved reporter Don Lemon while standing with peaceful protesters.

YouTube activist The Black Child noticed the encounter on CNN and quickly identified Page and exposed his radical views in the video below. The Black Child pulled clips from a 2012 lecture given by Sergeant Page where he gives detailed plans of a military police state takeover of America.

CNN has now confirmed the officer pretending to manhandle reporter Don Lemon is indeed Dan Page in that 2012 lecture. Page has been suspended for his ideology and will be forced to undergo psychiatric evaluation. Of course, they still pretend that Page wasn’t a CNN-paid provocateur in that ridiculous sidewalk scene.

Lemon uses the opportunity to smear the Oath Keepers as sharing Page’s views. However, they report Oath Keeper’s response that Page is not a member of their organization and was only invited to lecture about the police state.

This is the second time in a week that an activist journalist got a thug removed from the Ferguson protest. Three days ago a police officer pointed an assault rifle in the face of a peaceful citizen journalist and says “I will fucking kill you”. When the livestreamer asks for his name the officer replied “Go fuck yourself!”

The officer was removed from Ferguson the following day and suspended. Activist journalists have done more to enforce police accountability this week than authorities seem to have done in a span of years.

It’s a very interesting world we live in.

Crowdfunding campaign for officer who shot Michael Brown spurs controversy

A crowdfunding campaign in support of the officer who shot unarmed 18-year-old Michael Brown is under fire as it has raised more money to date than all of the campaigns for the victim of the shooting combined.

Calls to have the website hosting the campaign, GoFundMe, take down the donation page reached a fever pitch when the internet was alerted to the fact that many of the comments being left alongside donations were hateful and racist in nature. As of Friday, donations to Officer Darren Wilson stood at $234,910 after five days of activity.

A similar campaign for the Michael Brown family – set up on the same website – has raised just over $174,000 in nine days, while a separate fund established specifically for the Brown children had raised $1,136 in 10 days.

A separate campaign meant to support local journalists and keep the events in Ferguson, Missouri, in the news, meanwhile, has raised more than $13,000 so far.

Critics of the campaign for Wilson complained that it was unnecessary since the officer is still getting paid by the police department – he was placed on paid administrative leave following the incident involving Brown, in which the teenager was fatally shot up to six times. The shooting sparked protests against police brutality and excessive force in Ferguson, which are still ongoing.

“This page has been created to support Officer Darren Wilson of the Ferguson Police Department,” the page originally read, according to Business Insider. “We stand behind Officer Darren Wilson and his family during this trying time in their lives. All proceeds will be sent directly to Darren Wilson and his family for any financial needs they may have including legal fees.”

Additionally, when donations began flooding in, many were accompanied by racist comments, causing many on social media to accuse the campaign of violating GoFundMe’s terms and conditions. The website specifically states that “items that promote hate, violence, racial intolerance, or the financial exploitation of a crime” are prohibited.

Wilson has not been charged with a crime over Brown’s death, however, and it is unclear if he will be. The website eventually disabled the comments on the page, but stated that it’s a “neutral platform” and the campaign would not be removed.

Others, meanwhile, noted that GoFundMe collects five percent of all the money raised in a campaign, suggesting it may be why the page was never taken down.

Three teens create an incredible police accountability app with tons of awesome features — video included

Intellihub.com
Aug 19, 2014

By John Vibes | The Free Thought Project.com

A new app will become available for IPhone and Android devices later this month that will allow people to rate their local police department, as well as their individual police encounters.  Possibly the most impressive thing about this app, is that it was created by a few young teenagers who wanted to find solutions to the problem of police corruption.

14-year-old Caleb Christian and his two sisters, 16-year-old Ima, and 15 year old Asha, plan to release their revolutionary new app “Five-O” on August 18th.  The app will allow people to review and rate their experiences with police much like the app “Yelp!” allows people to rate and review private businesses.

Five-O will allow users to share the details of their police encounters and traffic stops with the world, and will make it possible for victims of police brutality to instantly gather local support for their case.

“We’ve been hearing about the negative instances in the news, for instance most recently the Michael Brown case, and we always talk about these issues with our parents, they always try to reinforce that we should focus on solutions. It’s important to talk about the issues, but they try to make us focus on finding solutions. That made us think why don’t we create an app to help us solve this problem,” Ima Christian told Business Insider.

New Anti Police State App Helps You “See Something, Say Something” in Real-Time — video included

Activist Post
Aug 23, 2014

Recent studies have shown that police are held almost completely unaccountable by the current systems of governmental oversight. Perhaps this is the reason why you are 9 times more likely to be killed by a law enforcement officer than a terrorist. Rather than wait for bloated bureaucracy or corrupt government to save the day, we as activists have to find our own solutions. Technology is one of these solutions.

As we have seen, the violent crackdown on independent journalism in Ferguson is a sign of a worsening situation in much of America. More than ever, each citizen needs to become a member of the media and record everything that they see during encounters with the police.

A new smartphone app called Sidekik aims to make it as easy as possible for you not only to record the police and upload that recording offsite, but to put you in immediate contact with legal representation to help you navigate the encounter … in real-time.

Please view additional details and their Indiegogo campaign video below if you would like to support this new anti police state tool. 

What is Sidekik?

Sidekik is a mobile application which will perform two key actions simultaneously. One, Sidekik will activate your smartphone’s audio and video recording devices and begin streaming the data to a secure facility. Two, Sidekik will initiate a video call and connect you with an attorney who will represent you in whatever situation you find yourself.
